Welcome to Rye College

Dear new Year 7 students and families, 

Welcome to Rye College! We are so pleased you are now part of our amazing school! 

We know the last year has felt very different but we are going to try our hardest to make the move to secondary school feel as normal as possible. Even though it's not as easy as it was to see each other face-to-face, we have some great ideas for getting to know each other before you arrive. 

To start your journey with us, we have created this special 'transition webpage' with some informal welcome videos and a tour of the college. 

We will be in touch with you and your family soon about what to do next - and there will be plenty of opportunities to answer all your questions. 

Rye College is a very safe and welcoming school. All our students were Year 7 students once so they know how you feel. 

Our school is a place where you can be yourself, quickly make friends and feel part of our family. 

We know this is the start of your bright future! 

Mr P Harrison
Director for Learning for Key Stage 3
